Default Head Mount w/out caping??

I have two deer racks that I would like to have mounted. Neither of them were caped out, so I was wondering if they could still be head mounted. And if so, is it more expensive to have them mounted w/out caping them out??

I have two racks that were cut off (attached to the skull). I wanted to have them shoulder mounted with another cape put on it. Any info would be appreciated. Thanks, Nick

Nick ; just take them to you local taxidermist and he will put them on another cape for you.if you take him a cape or another head,he should not charge you over a few $$$$$ more than regular price to do it.with out a cape he will have to pay someone for on or maybe he has friends that save them for him.just call him and ask which would be best for him.
talk to all your hunting buddies and have them save you a couple of capes.then you got it made.

congrats. on you bucks.when you do get them mt. post us some pic's.
hop this helps.

Yup.. Just have the taxidermist get a cape for the estimated weight of the deer.
